A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §7-20-3a, relating to expanding the definition of capital improvements and services which may be funded with county impact fees to include libraries, library services and affordable housing for individuals or families with low or moderate income.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §7-20-3a, to read as follows:

ARTICLE 20. FEES AND EXPENDITURES FOR COUNTY DEVELOPMENT.

§7-20-3a. Additional definitions.

    (a) “Capital improvements” also mean:

    (1) Libraries that are owned, supported or established by county government; and

    (2) Facilities that are owned, operated or established by county government and are determined by the county commission to be necessary for the administration and provision of affordable housing for individuals or families of low or moderate income, pursuant to a program to provide affordable housing that is authorized by law and approved by the county commission.

    (b) “County services” also mean:

    (1) Library services; and

    (2) Services of administering and providing affordable housing for individuals or families of low or moderate income, pursuant to a program to provide affordable housing that is authorized by law and approved by the county commission.



 

    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to authorize county commissions to use impact fees to fund the building and operation of libraries and to administer and provide affordable housing for individuals or families of low or moderate income.


    §7-20-3a is new; therefore, it has been completely underscored.
